    muttdog is right. Follow my guide and everything will work perfectly. There is a new guide coming for the new firmware. It should be out within a week or so. But it will all be basically the same.

    is the system folder like the following "SYSTEM" i think it has to be in caps. And make sure it has all the right files, download it again if your unsure.

    over there
    What will be out? Your guide or the new firmware? I'm sure the current version of M3 Sakura will change, seeing as there isn't even an game settings menu yet... [​IMG]

    Hi!
    I've thisa same problem as readyrangers:
    "save file does not exist.creating save file....that is on the top screen when i pick a game to play.On the bottom screen it then says save data file format error.The micro card has been formatted any ideas as the first one i done was no problem? "
    my soft is 3.6 on 3.2 was everything ok but for example ninja gainden stuck during the play but on the 3.6 gema work fine but i have problem with new roms because DS won't create *.sav file and stuck on this moment.
    Thanks for help.
